Has anyone seen Jay Lenos new scanner? It scans a complex part then duplicates it using a plastic spray scanner full size. The gears even work. Think of a wood spray option, IPE?I’m a gear head too & think his site is great, Check it out! http://www.jaylenosgarage.com/extras/extras/nextengines-3d-scanner/
After posting my review of the Grizzly T10010 wet grinder, having a set of nice, hair-shaving sharp chisels (and a freshly shaved hand…), I decided to put them to use. I grabbed some scraps out of my wood bin and started marking out some dovetails. I’ve laid them out several times, and gotten them to the point where the majority of the material was removed from the joint, but I never had a sharp enough chisel to pare them down – I was basically butchering the wood… ...
I’m building a tower for my son for Christmas. [slightly behind in posting] My son is forever wanting to be “up” and see what is going on in the kitchen. Whether we are cooking, cleaning or preparing something – he wants to be involved. He doesn’t currently have anything to stand on so that he can see – so I’m building him a tower. He’ll be able to climb up into it and see the counter and be involved in what is going on. I started wi...
The top and sides were glued up and trimmed a couple of days ago and today I was able to cut the dados and sliding dovetail slots. Of course, I screwed up one of the (supposedly stopped) dados and will need to insert a little block for the, err, stop. I had almost forgotten how much mess routing a dado can make. I made the drawers to a variation of the intended design after discovering that even the slightest deviation between the holes for the shelving wires and the actual wires was enoug...
Not much left to go here! We left off with the box in my make-shift box vise, with the hinges glued in place…I began yesterday by cutting and cleaning-up as many pegs as I’ll need to pin them on, in this case fourteen.Then I’ll measure to set the Drill Stop depthSetting the Drill Stop. I used a couple of spare boards to get close to the height, then fine-tuned by adjusting the drill in the chuck a little…I had pre-drilled these pilots slightly undersized to create less...
I am expecting the long awaited return of my Grizzly lathe headstock. In 1years time, had become very efficient in swapping out bearing and other parts on this machine. After the last phone call to Grizzly, the tech ask me to send the headstock back at their expense. I just got a phone cal from UPS freight. Tomorrow between 12-5pm, I will be pacing like an expecting father.I have been making do with my mini lathe, but I miss the 2hp and 16” swing.
Someone once said, “Plan your work and work your plan.” Or was it, “Plan your woodworking at work, so you can plan on working on wood after work?” Either way, I have a plan. Over the last several years I have spent a good deal of my time building spaces in the virtual world of Second Life. I have designed hundreds of pieces of virtual furniture and I want to learn how to bring them into the real world. I realize that most readers are now scratching their heads with their tape measu...

I’m fascinated with trees. Their shapes and colors are infinitely varied and I see new wonders every time I start looking for new ones.This one, however, has a startling appearance and I had to drive the car around the block to come back to it.It seems to be shedding its bark!Take a look. I include a close up in case it will help. Does any one here know what this tree is and what its doing?Is it always like this or is this a seaonal thing? d
I have been using the unisaw for the past couple of months even though it was not “complete”. I did finally get around to finishing the saw yesterday and I must say it is awesome. In the previous pics you will notice that the dust door is missing, even though I have it. I had a new badge made to replace the one on the dust door and a new knob for the same. The badge and knob were installed on the door and the door installed on the saw. When I acquired the saw the metal floor that ...
